    i have a 4 inch procomp suspension lift kit with 2 inch spacer on my 02 4WD reg cab tacoma. i have already replaced my cv axles once and the boots are already ripped again, i know this is because of the spacer but i really want the extra lift. if i replace all of it with something like a 6 inch fabtech lift will this eliminate my problems? thanks

    The 4" procomp is a drop bracket lift. So he's got 6.5" of lift total.

    exactly.. so the angle on my cv joints isn't to bad but it's bad enough that the boots rip every couple of years and by that time the whole cv axle needs to be replaced because they are all dried up and worn out. could i do something like a manual hub conversion?

    Well idk, if you don't have bad cv angles then I wouldn't go all out and buy a new $2,000 lift.

    Why don't you just take the spacers out and have 4" of lift. Then your CVss will be fine.
